    I know there are several different models of warwick corvettes and I'm interested in what the tonal differences are between the various models of standards out there.

    For example how does the tone differ between the swamp ash models and the bubinga models? What about passive vs active, how much does that affect the tone of the corvettes?

    Your going to get more sustain and a more classic Warwick sound out of the Bubinga, they weigh a ton but sound great even though they are passive.
    Swamp ash is much lighter, the Active controls will give you a louder bass and a wider tone range. Won't sound as classic Warwick. I had a standard and have a double buck. The double buck is one on the most versitile basses I've played. A lot of options with the 2 MM's and 2 switches.
    They are all good, it's just what you want.
